A portrait of this fascinating fellow, from my current sketchbook pages.
There is a good Wikipedia page about him. By magic or clever engineering, this scrawny eccentric recluse single-handedly erected his own private Stonehenge. Peeking neighbours claimed that he could make the monoliths float into the air by singing to them. One wonders what that song might have been, as Leedskalnin took his secrets with him into the grave. How frustrating.
